The Coppell girls soccer program found a slew of players on the all-region and all-state teams at the end of the 2020 season.
Goalie Lauren Kellett was a first team all-state honoree after a sensational senior campaign and high school career, becoming one of three Coppell players to be named a first team all-state selection by the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches.
Kellett – stepping in with the challenging task of replacing Maddie Weber, who won a Class 6A state title in 2015 and later went to play at Clemson – immediately made a crucial impact and capped off her high school career in style. The TCU signee finished with 58 saves while helping the Cowgirls to a No. 20 national ranking by TopDrawerSoccer.com and a No. 8 ranking in Texas.
Additionally, Kellett was tabbed as the District 6-6A goalkeeper of the year.
Fellow senior Haley Roberson was recognized as an all-state defender next to Kellett, helping create a formidable back line for Coppell.
Despite missing 75% of the district slate due to injury, Roberson shined every chance she got. Alongside scoring the fourth-most goals (eight) and dishing out the second-most assists (seven) on the roster, she and Coppell recorded a remarkable 63-17 goal differential this season while also notching nine shutouts in 19 games.
Roberson, also a first team all-district honoree, will remain in the Metroplex at the next level as she signed her letter of intent to play Division I soccer at North Texas.
Junior forward Jocelyn Alonzo continued her run of all-state honors once again this year.
Alonzo, an all-state player in each of her previous varsity campaigns, was tabbed as a first team all-state forward after posting some of Coppell’s top numbers in its run to a third-place finish in a loaded 6-6A slate. She tallied the second-highest scoring total (10) and had the fourth-most assists (four).
District 6-6A also recognized Alonzo as the midfielder of the year, which followed up her being voted as the utility player of the year as a sophomore.
Sophomore Michelle Pak rounded out Coppell’s postseason honors with a first team all-region nod in what was a stellar 2020 performance for the youngster.
Pak had team highs in both goals (17) and assists (nine), meaning she scored or assisted on 26 of Coppell’s 63 goals this season.
